-On this episode we speak out in defence of Safe Schools, a program
designed to increase awareness of queer issues in schools and reduce the bullying
faced by queer kids.
-This program is currently under attack from homophobic, transphobic and
all round queerphobic assholes, some of who are politicians such as Senator
Cory Bernadi, leading to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull approving an
investigation into Safe Schools.
-We encourage people to contact your current/previous school and thank
them for having the program if they do or encourage them adopt the program if
they don’t have it yet.
-Further discussion on activism for refugees.
-The importance of not just letting them stay but also closing the camps
(opposing mandatory detention and offshore processing) in light of Baby Asha
being released into community detention for the short term at least.
-Our latest find from the street.
